A collection of essays on London by its own, Virginia Woolf. A fervent walker with a keen discerning eye taking all in as she stalks across the city. She begins her wanderings at the east docks besides the Thames River, making her way to the Oxford street shoppers and the austere Westminster Abbey, ending her guide with a wry look at the House of Commons. Woolf pauses along the way to view the spectacles of the city, both admiringly and critically, as only its own can.
